The Benztown Brigade volunteered this week at the E.J. Jackson Foundation Turkey Giveaway in Los Angeles, which feeds over 12,000 hungry Angelenos in need every Thanksgiving.
The 33-year annual charitable event served long lines of people, stretching for blocks, as they waited patiently to receive a turkey with all the trimmings-- cornbread, greens, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, fresh produce, cookies, water, and more donated by the E.J. Jackson Foundation.
The E.J. Jackson Foundation's mission is to feed as many hungry families, senior citizens, and veterans throughout the year. Benztown's Burbank, CA, employees and their friends and families have joined them in this community service effort for the past four years. In addition to rolling up their sleeves this year, Benztown donated $1,000 to offset some of the costs associated with the food giveaway.
